Plant-parasitic root-lesion nematodes are microscopic parasites whose damage (which includes lesions and predisposing a plant to infection) is often difficult to identify. This 14-page publication will improve your detection and control of the two nematode species that most plague dryland wheat fields, Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei. Learn about their biology, what symptoms to look out for, their effect on yields, plus effective crop-management strategies, including nematode-identification testing.
